    wait.. are you operating FM on the low part of the band or no?

    Where is this FM in the low part of the band nonsense coming from? Why would I want to do that?

    right. so when someone asks a direct question the correct response is a meme and an indirect answer.

    Pretty much given the previous posts. So let me ask again, why is there any assumption I would want to operate FM on 144.200?

    As a follow up (mostly for it to be documented if somebody does a similar search) I can report that the antenna performed well in the VHF contest, as well as in my
    first successful MS contact with another station in Nevada running only a 6 element yagi (a 881 miles contact).

    Thanks again for the helpful input and good ideas.

    When someone specifies 144.200 the 2 meter SSB calling frequency I pretty much assume they are operating weak signal!
